Head on over to StarWars.com where Dan Brooks chats with editor Guido Frazzini and art director Roberto Santillo about the gorgeous Brazillian versions of the movie adaptations which are currently being released here in the UK in separate issues with The Phantom Menace recently hitting shelves.
Disney-Lucasfilm Press’ Star Wars: The Original Trilogy ‘ A Graphic Novel, featuring all-ages comic book versions of A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi, is the latest addition to this legacy, and a major one.
